These lecture notes are information that I have put together from various knowledge sources; very little is original creation by myself. I have tried to give credit to original sources if at all possible. Several lectures are Powerpoint slides created by David Harrison, the author of our textbook.
DRAMs, Non-volatile Memories (basic SRAMS covered in VLSI 1)
Clocks
Power Management
1. Power Management
Design for Test
1. Design for Test (David Harrison)
Arithmetic: Shifting/Multiplication
1. Shifting/Multiplication
Arithmetic: Floating Point
1. Floating Point Introduction
2. Floating Point slides by Behrooz Parhami . These slides are from Dr. Parhami's textbook websiteand cover Chapters 17-20 from his textbook, Computer Arithmetic: Algorithms and Hardware Designs . Because of the large number of slides in this presentation, the following are the ones that we will discuss in class: 1-13, 33-34,40,41, 42.
